West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely exceptional and very desirable 1962 Buick Invicta 2 Door Hardtop 401/325HP V8 Coupe with it's original 410/325 V8 engine in great daily driving condition and with no signs of any major accidents and no rust!
This is a rare first year 1962 Buick Invicta with it's original 401 c.i. 4 barrel V8 engine with dual exhausts! This car was one rare blend of size and performance before the muscle car era! The original factory options include the highly desirable High Performance 401 c.i. 4 barrel V8 engine, Automatic transmission, Power steering, Power Windows, Power Brakes, Sonomatic radio with manual antenna (with an after market CD player also installed under the dash), Rear seat speaker, Dual exhausts, Vinyl bucket seats and electric clock.
The Buick Invicta was arguably Buick's first performance car, although it was more a luxury sports coupe than all out performance. Nevertheless, it began Buick's quest for power and culminated in the Wildcat (officially named the Wildcat Sport Coupe) which was part of the Invicta line but included front bucket seats, a console, tachometer, and a rear floor lamp. It's body style was classy and attractive. GM's cars for 1961 were the first to reflect the influence of Bill Mitchell, Harley Earl's successor as corporate design chief and Mitchell made sure the line lost dogleg windshields and needless bulk to become simpler and more dignified if still visually massive! The 2 door Hardtop coupe actually retailed over $3,900 compared to the cheaper convertible model which was priced at just over $3,800! Standard power was the Buick LT401 cid V8 with a high-performance 325 hp (242 kW) 401 cu in Nailhead V8. The transmission was the famous dynaflow shared by all full-size Buicks and the Invicta's trio of portholes on the front fenders was a design cue lasting only through the 1963 model year. The 401 cu in (6.6 L) 401 was Buick's muscle car powerplant of choice, and was found in the company's Skylark Gran Sport and Buick Wildcat, among others.
This particular 1962 Buick Invicta 2 Door Hardtop example is in very fine condition throughout with no signs of any rust - obviously a most likely always garaged car. The car looks extremely impressive with an older repaint in dark gray from it's original 'Desert Sand & Teal Mist' colors. The bucket seats vinyl interior is now finished in black from the original 'Fawn' color and is also in exceptional condition throughout! The original matching #'s 401 c.i. 4 barrel V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent and this particular car drives magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day sports car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car has four good tires and the car has it's original spare wheel and jack still in the trunk!
This is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving and never abused example of an original Southgate, California built 1962 Buick Wildcat 401/325HP V8 coupe in very fine condition throughout and a highly coveted Buick amongst classic car collectors and obviously any Buick enthusiast!
